uOttawa Students For Life: A Call to Action

I have been avidly watching the news surrounding many states down south that have taken action to cut funds to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. Their activism should serve as a wake up call to pro-lifers in Canada, as we seem to have forgotten about how to go about making abortion unthinkable. Following a very successful March for Life, we should not be afraid to take it to the next level and lobby our provincial governments to take action. Politicians everywhere are perfectly content if the abortion issue remains muted or silenced, as it allows them to evade controversy. In reality, controversy and democracy must coexist for any progress to be made in our society. Wake up, Canada! It’s time to unite and show the government we mean business. Can you imagine the impact of all of Canada’s pro-life force mobilizing to lobby their governments? It would be a victory in itself to have that force actively participating in democracy and to finally take action on the worst human rights crime of all time. Don’t wait for someone to tell you! Write to your MP, your MPP, your MLA, your MNA, and ask them where they stand on this issue. Finally, urge them to take action on this, or you will continue to lobby them to offer alternatives to abortion for women in need of real support.
